Food and drink
We admit it, we’re a bunch of foodies here – but you can find a lot more than avocado toast at one of Manchester’s many food and drink establishments.
Salford’s Chapel Street, just a few minutes’ walk from main campus, is home to a growing number of independent outlets including veggie favourite Deli Lama, authentic Italian pizza at Vero Moderno and beautiful brunches at Another Heart to Feed.
In the Northern Quarter it’s all about quirky diners, canteens and cafes– huge breakfasts at Koffee Pot, vegan junk food at V Rev, American-style burgers at Almost Famous and homemade cakes at Teacup.
Manchester’s Chinatown is the second biggest in the UK, with a host of Chinese, Korean and Japanese restaurants, as well as a number of speciality supermarkets. Just outside of the city centre you’ll find Rusholme’s famous ‘curry mile’ offering Indian, South East Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Weekly street food fair GRUB offers a rotating bill of the best caterers from around the country, and the indoor market at the Mackie Mayor brings you quality food and drink from local producers and brewers.
